The Spanish club “bought” the Football player of Serbian origin Nemanja Maksimovic, and in a week Maksimovic will sign a contract, BNews.kz reports.
"Valencia CF is a great club, so I agreed at once. I had a lot of suggestions from the best clubs in Europe, but we decided to stop on the Valencia CF. I think the Spanish League will be the best option for me. The contract with FC Astana will expire in six months, and I don`t think that the club will solve problems related to my transition to the Valencia CF” Nemanja Maksimovic said in an interview with b92 portal.
“There is no official agreement between FC Astana and bats about the transition of Serbian linebacker,” Vesti.kz reports with reference to the press service of the team.
"The documents relating to the Maksimovic transfer to any of the clubs aren`t still signed. As soon as the documents are signed, we will announce it officially on our website,” the press service of FC Astana said. The agreement would be until the summer of 2021 with a possible extension for another year.
According to the Serbian and Spanish mass media, FC Astana will get from the Valencia compensation in the amount of 300,000 euros, as Maksimovic contract with the Kazakhstan club expires in the summer of 2017.
Let`s remind, Maksimovic played for FC Astana from February 2015. He won twice the championship of Kazakhstan in the capital team and once the Cup of the country. He was a participant of the group stage of the Champions League and Europa League. Last year Maksimovic became the champion of the world in the youth national team of Serbia, and it made his debut in the national team.
There are 54 matches counted in KPL in which he scored nine goals and passed six goals.
